Soccer star building replica iconic holes in backyard


What's that you say? You have a putting green or little chipping area at your house? That's cute.

Welsh soccer star Gareth Bale and his man bun sees your setup and he raises you a three-hole course in his South Wales backyard that will feature replicas of Augusta National's11th hole, "White Dogwood," TPC Sawgrass' iconic 17th island green, and the short Postage Stamp eighth hole at Royal Troon.

Bale, Real Madrid's $15 million man, reportedly plays to a 6 handicap and told the Daily Express, "I love playing golf. I love the sport, I love the fact that you can just get away from everything, be with your friends, and no one can come over to you on a golf course." 

So this begs the question, does Bale love golf as much as George Costanza loves velvet? Ah the things that keep you up at night.
